Speech-Language Pathology

The Speech-Language Pathology team at Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford provides evaluations and treatment for children from birth to age 21. We provide your child with the best care possible by using the most current speech pathology research and best practices in a family-centered care environment.

We offer comprehensive services for all types of speech-language conditions in both outpatient and inpatient settings. Learn more about our services and the types of conditions we treat, or contact us for more information.
